2005 Chevy trailblazer lt.

My 2005 Chevy trailblazer has been a great vehicle. The heated leather seats are a comfort for me in any season, and the v8 engine has nice power. The biggest problem I have is when something mechanical has a problem it is difficult for people to diagnose, and difficult to access to fix. It took people 3 years to diagnose a starter problem. Does that say more about the mechanics I was taking my vehicle to, or the vehicle itself? My vehicle has over 200,000 miles on it though. It has driven from South Carolina to California, to Colorado, and finally back home to Texas. The space it has for the third row seating provides ample room for luggage or the 2 German shepherds we used to have. It is also one that is hard to break into. Someone tried to break in using a tool you jam into the keyhole, to no avail. There was some damage to my lock, but nothing was stolen. It has had its moments where it was unreliable (due to the starter problem), but overall it had been a very good vehicle to me and my 2 children.

2005 Chevy Trailblazer is a super reliable and dependable beast.

I really do like my Chevy Trailblazer. It has been a super reliable car for me to have. Living up North, there is almost always snow or something I have to get through and the dependability is so amazing. I love that I can choose to use 2 wheel drive, All wheel and even 4 wheel. I also just love that I have so much room, but I'm not driving a huge truck. The only complaints I have is that the make of my blazer is that there is no aux nor a cassette player, so I cannot use an aux. I also am not extremely fond of the gas mileage. If I could have a car just like the trailblazer that is more gas efficient, I would buy it in a heartbeat! The reliability, comfort, and the performance of this car has me hooked and I won't buy another car until this one breaks or I can find something similar to it.

Features of our 2005 Chevrolet trailblazer.

Our trailblazer has leather seats, a sunroof, Bose stereo, and every other extra feature. We bought it used 2 years ago, and it has run great ever since. We have replaced brakes and tires, and of course the oil. My husband did the work, as he was a mechanic for 40 years. It has heated seats, which are great in winter, as they heat up faster than the regular heat does. Each side of the front seats has it is own temperature controls, which is helpful since my husband and I often need different settings to be comfortable. This vehicle has been very reliable and we enjoy driving it. We have driven in rain and snow. At times we've used the 4 wheel drive when stuck in sand and it pulls right out. When we are ready to upgrade we will likely look for the same car in a newer year.
